I met this awesome couple years ago when they lived in Florida and they were planning their wedding in Minnesota. We set up a time to meet at my studio and talk wedding photography, but I messed up one small detail, I accidentally sent them my home address instead of my studio address. So they showed up at my home (while I was at the studio waiting for them). They were such great sports about it (of course I felt so bad!!) Somehow they stuck with me and I photographed their beautiful wedding soon after. Regardless of our rough start, over the years we have become great friends. Also nine months ago they made a ridiculously cute baby and I was honored to photograph their sweet Isla during their last visit to Minnesota.
I am so excited to share with you Catherine and Harry's wedding that took place at the Calhoun Beach Club. It was exactly what you would dream up for Minnesota 'winter wedding' weather. Every detail from the adorable welcome bags (check out that cute stocking cap) to the stunning flowers and decor was effortlessly cool and gorgeous. The thing that I noticed was how much fun every single person was having. It was a true celebration of an awesome couple.
Minnesota Bride Magazine recently featured the gorgeous wedding of Abby & Paul. Not only was it an honor to see it published, but it was also named one of the top 14 weddings of the year by Minnesota Bride Magazine 2014!

Natalie and John currently live in California, but came back to the midwest to celebrate their wedding day at the Bigelow Chapel and the Science Museum of MInnesota. I loved how they made the day personal to them by incorporating some of their favorite things, like geodes, dinosours and lovely graphic design (by Natalie). Also, how cool is it that their wedding rings "glow" under incandescent light? Natalie and John, thank you for letting me capture your awesome wedding day!
It was last winter when I first met Meredith and Eric and took their Engagement Photos. We had a great time playing in the snow with their sweet pup. Fast forward to their wedding this fall and I was so lucky to get to work with them again. They are a joy to be around because they adore each other and their energy is contagious. Meredith and Eric, thank you for trusting me to capture your beautiful story.
Alyssa and Eric were married on the most beautiful fall day featuring some of Minnesota's best qualities. The ceremony near Lake of the Isles was held at the lovely St Paul's Episcopal Church with the reception at the elegant Minikahda Country Club overlooking Lake Calhoun and downtown Minneapolis. One fun fact about Alyssa and Eric is that they were both star hockey players at the same college. It is hard to picture them in as tough competitors after seeing them looking so in love and so glamorous on their wedding day. Alyssa and Eric thank you for letting me capture this unforgettable moment in your lives!
Erin and Tony live in Chicago and came back to Minnesota for their wedding. Minnesota gave them it's finest fall day which even included a full rainbow. The beautiful settings of Lake of the Isles Lutheran Church and the amazing Aria, made for a sophisticated and gorgeous wedding day (especially thanks to Mi Mi Design). One thing I love about Erin and Tony is that they love to dance with each other (and they have mad skills!). They had a rockin' band Jonah and the Whales who brought down the house. Erin and Tony, thank you so much for letting me capture your amazing wedding day!
